A very good evening to anyone blog-hopping tonight.   I've just come on to very quickly add some fat pages so that I can get them posted tomorrow.  Also have some atc to post out as well.
It's been a wet day here but forecast for tomorrow is looking good so I shan't mind going out to the post office. For those who don't know;  
Fat pages are 4"x4".  We are doing a swap over on Docrafts ATC section.  A different subject for each of the 12 months of the year.

A very good day to you all, it's another hot day here in the Central Belt and a busy one for me.  Church in a little while and then in the afternoon Livingstons very own Songs of Praise to celebrate the fact that our town is fifty years old this year.  It's being held in our brand new Civic Centre and last time I was at a council event there was a lovely spread put on.  Our council taxes at work lol!
Well, down to craft.  I made 3 atc's and one card yesterday.  I couldn't tell you how many different shapes cut out but none seemed to go with the image finally settled for this.  I used free papers and a free LOTV image.
Hope you all have a lovely day
thanks for hopping by.

Well today started of dull with little bouts of drizzle but by 4pm the sun had come out and turned my craft space into an oven.  Still I did get one card made before my crafty neighbour came through with some new dies to try out.  I shall have a play with them tomorrow after church.

Backing paper came free with a magazine.  The bird stamp is one I bought at the Sincerely Yours event last month.  Sorry I can't remember who makes it.  The little bird cage came in a pack from the wedding section at Hobbycrafts.  I think it's meant to go around little cakes tho' I'm not sure. Metal disc from my stash and I used a selection of dies.

I don't know what like the weather is where you are but it hasn't stopped raining since Thursday lunchtime and the forecast isn't for anything better in the next couple of days.  So staying in and crafting is the only thing to do.
Another card using the old wrapping paper and my new anja corner die.  I'm very pleased with the way this has turned out.  Hope you like it.  Thanks for hopping by my blog and for any comments you leave.

I had a whole week where I did not one bit of crafting, come to think of it I didn't do a lot of anything.  I was just so tired all week and even went to bed early every night.   I now have to play catch-up.   Fat pages and atc's to make and then start on my birthday cards for June and July.  So I started my May fat page on Sunday, June fat page on Monday and a very quick atc for our ATC friendship swap.  All are now in the post.  Hopefully I'll get a couple of birthday cards done tomorrow.   Thanks to everyone who has left me comments in the last week or two, they are very much appreciated.  Anne xxx
